Paul First Nation

The Paul First Nation, more commonly known as the Paul Band, is a First Nation community or band based in Wabamun, Alberta of mixed Cree and Nakoda (Stoney) origin. They are party to Treaty Six and had the Buck Lake Indian Reserve 133C and Wabamun Lake Indian Reserve 133A, 133B and 133C allocated to them by the federal government in 1892. However the Buck Lake Reserve was decimated by the Spanish Flu of 1918 and is now largely abandoned.[1]

As of 2005, the nation had 1,926 members, of which 1,110 lived on-reserve.[2]

Paul Band's Wabamun 133A and 133B lands are located along Lake Wabumun, approximately 70 km (43 mi) west of Edmonton. The lake is a popular destination for Alberta to spend weekends and holidays, and the band operates the Ironhead Golf and Country Club to appeal to this market.
